L.A. has had no shortage of food tastings and festivals as of late, but this one sponsored by The Accidental Wine Company, has a purpose other than to satisfy those watering mouths and growling tums. Your $75 tax deductible ticket purchase goes to benefit Homeboy Industries, an organization that assists at-risk and formerly gang-involved youth to become positive and contributing members of society through job placement, education and training. Here are the deets:
You’ll be fed from Homegirl Cafe (staffed by 30 young women in training to learn the food service industry) complete with 8 exceptional wine pairings. Try your hand at the Silent Auction featuring art, wine and more. And meet Greg Boyle, founder of Homeboy Industries.
